The road through the Aspen Trees image is dedicated to our grandfather, “POPS,” who took us on a tour of the Rimrock area in Washington (up White Pass) and gave us a challenge to create this photograph.
This was an incredibly challenging image to create, as there was very little room to get off the highway to actually take the photo! In fact, we had to pull two of our wheels off the road and keep our SUV, partly in traffic. We were blessed with the fact that not much traffic rolls through this area. BUT… and that is a big but… you never know who is going to come whizzing by!
So… my wife was my lookout as I dragged myself into the middle of the street and captured 7 or 8 different perspectives of the road. The goal was to get the lighting of the landscape in line with directing the eyes of the viewer to the spot, far down the road. I also wanted to capture something that caused the viewer to pause for a moment and possibly see this majestic grove of aspen trees, in a way that they have never seen them.
I love the White Pass and Chinook Pass areas of Washington State. My wife’s family lives close by and we are so blessed to be able to travel down the roads and see what is around the next bend. It is fascinating how God has created, some of these places!
Hey, Pops- I hope we did you proud on this one! Can’t wait to come up, again- for our next challenge;)

“My name is JB Brookman. I’m a rock star concert photographer who grew up shooting the biggest stars in the world. The stages and venues of Hollywood and LA used to be my home, but now I have made a home in the suburbs of Nashville and Franklin, Tennessee. Shooting Taylor Swift, U2, Elton John and Ed Sheeran is great, but my true passion is creating highly stylized, authentic and modern portraits of High School Seniors, making them feel like they are at the center of the stage.”
